Sun Shield is a sun protectant lotion that provides a completely natural way of safeguarding your skin from sun damage. This lotion doesn’t absorb the sun’s rays or reflect them. Instead, it penetrates deeply into the skin to help prevent damage at the cellular level. Raspberry seed oil protects against UVA and UVB rays, while the oils and butters naturally have SPF ranging from 2 up to 50 SPF each.

We use pure, plant-based oils infused with whole organic herbs that are rich in antioxidants. This formula nourishes your skin, blocks free radicals, all while protecting your skin from redness, wrinkles, and damage. Please keep in mind that Sun Shield is not an official sunscreen. Depending on your skin type, you may prefer to pair this with a mineral-based sunscreen for particularly hot or sunny days or you may find it to be enough protection on its own. Looking for an after-sun lotion? Try Sun-Soothe!

    This is the first product from Earthley that we have not been pleased with. We rarely use sunscreen, but I was excited about how this works– it also has ingredients I was completely on board with. My husband who easily tans used it and had the worst burn he has ever had. I already had some color on me but decided to try it while working on the garden for about 20 minutes and it fried ever area I put it on. It took a week of using Sun Soothe for he and I to heal, vs 2 applications for a regular sunburn. I’m not sure if we had a bad batch, but this product was a flop for us. I ordered a few for people when I ordered mine and everyone had the same thing happened and burnt incredibly bad. I hope at some point a sunscreen like this does exist because I really love the idea of it.

    I normally only use astaxanthin for sun protection, but decided to add this in for more protection. Unfortunately, both times that I have used the product, I have burned horribly, after only one hour in the sun.

    I wanted to love this product. I have used plain red raspberry seed oil as a daily sunscreen for years now. Like the plain raspberry seed oil, this Sun Shield is adequate for daily outdoor activity like working in the garden or hanging laundry. But even with hourly re-applications it did not provide enough protection in the water. I got the worst burn of my life while using this in water, even on my arms where I had a base tan already. In the same amount of time I would never reapply my old mineral sunscreen and I never even got pink. I was hoping the addition of the wax would give it staying power but evidently not. Also my face broke out pretty bad when using this, though avocado oil often does that for me so it wasn’t that much of a surprise. As much as the mineral stuff is annoying, I’m happily going back to it. Five days and counting and hoping my burn soon stops being painful and red…

    Apparently this isn’t to be used like sunscreen? I’m so confused. I put on myself and my daughter before going in the lake. It isn’t creamy, more just like orange tinted olive oil. That doesn’t really bother me. But, I got burnt- Shoulders and back quite badly. (Luckily, my daughter didn’t get burnt!) When I told my rep, she said it isn’t meant to be used as sunscreen. It just makes no sense.

    I, too, LOVE Earthley products but got very badly burned after a day at the beach in Southern California. I blistered and am now peeling. It’s a NO GO for me.

    I love Earthley products. I will always buy products from them. This product I did not like. I tan very easily in the summer and I can get pretty dark. I have always used the same sunscreen lotion for 20 years with an SPF of 8 and not burned. I go to the beach each summer for one week and that is the only time I spend time “tanning”. I used this product on the first day of my vacation and I applied it a few times, and got burned. I do not like the smell of it or the excessive oiliness of it. I used it on the second day and got more burn, tan too but red tan. For the rest of my vacation I used my old faithful. :(. The saving grace was the Earthley sun soothe, It was amazing. No stinging or pain from the burn at all. It is very oily and you only need a small amount.

    I was really hoping I would love this product but I’m now sunburned and miserable so unfortunately I did not find it effective at all. My son also got more red than I would have liked. Luckily, I made a point to keep him in the shade as much as possible or he would have gotten burnt. Use with caution 🙁

    Definitely did not work for me! I’ve been outside every day this week for several hours each time with no sunscreen on and no burns. Today I decided to try my new Earthley sunscreen and got so burned! I was only outside for about an hour, and my arms even got burned which is super rare. I was so excited for this product, but for some reason it drastically amplified my burns. It was similar to just being outside with baby oil on. Use with caution!

    I really wanted to like this product since I love many of Earthley’s products. However, this product is very oily and runny so much so that you can’t set it down with the lid off or allow kids to put on themselves. We used this for the first time at a baseball game. We applied as soon as we got in our seats so we didn’t apply the 15 minutes prior like the directions say, so maybe that was the issue. We sat in the sun for 2 hours (noon-2) and then decided to move to shade since we were getting red. We aren’t ones to burn easily but we got burned this time.

    I wanted to love this product, but I’m mostly just left feeling really stupid. I applied this and went in the sun for about an hour to an hour and a half. I FRIED like a piece of chicken. I did not have anything on my face, for reference, and had no problems with it. Everywhere I applied Sun Shield my body burned very quickly. I wish I had read other reviews that warned fair-skinned people to be cautious using this product. As always, Earthley Customer Service was AMAZING. I asked about usage, and they gave me the run down that’s listed in the product description and also suggested using this product alongside a mineral sunscreen. This is NOT sunscreen. The representative told me it has an estimated spf of 12-15, so for me, it was like applying tanning oil. Great for some, but not at all for me.
